Apprenticeships are work-based training programmes designed to equip people with job-specific skills and experiences that meet the needs of employers. As well as earning a wage, apprentices also work towards nationally recognised qualifications, which can take between one and four years to complete, depending on the level of apprenticeship and the industry sector it is in.

Support for employers

There are a number of different incentive schemes available to help employers take on an apprentice:

Information on each of the incentive schemes is available from the relevant campaign pages. You can also complete the employer expression of interest form to request more information, or visit the National Apprenticeship Service website for general information on apprenticeships.
